Does it work? Could it work? Could we make it work better? Professionals whose work brings them into contact with problems of crime and criminal justice are often faced with such questions and the need for reliable, workable solutions. Members of the Centre for Criminological Research can help criminal justice professionals, members of the 'not for profit' sector and community organisations to find answers.

Systematically researched information by an independent researcher from a top university is fundamental to the evaluation and analysis that organisations often require. The evaluation of in-house projects; policy analysis and advice; assistance with the design of monitoring instruments and the dissemination of good practice are just some of the ways in which professionals can tap the skills of Centre members.

Professionals wanting to secure reliable consultancy of relevance to policy and practice are encouraged to contact the Centre to discuss their ideas.
